Hey, I liked Delanie....right up to the time when he dropped the ball. And then again. And again. Sure he made some nice catches, nice moves , blocked well, but the drops, and there were many, just flat azz killed us. And many of those occurred on 3rd down, or RZ. He could be great....or he could be bad. And which Delanie showed up each game day was hard to say. If a guy is a receiver, TE or WR, or RB, and you can only count on him sometimes...then you got the wrong guy playing that position....and THAT was Delanie. Some good days, some bad. Unfortunately, in the BIG LEAGUES, that isn't good enough. Rally killer comes to mind. For all his really good days, dropping a ball that just had to be caught ....well, that wiped out his good days. I wish him well, but just not here.
agree with doc. i am just very happy to see, at this point in time,, the team has not opted to sign some old has been like owens or moss or some diva like miss lloyd. i love the fact that, just like the safety position,, they will throw all of the guys and kids together in one big pot and let them duke it out! that is fun and that brings out the best in everyone
Totally agree with the Delanie statement. Not sure why everyone is predicting doom and gloom by losing him. Is it really a longshot to expect our Gronk Jr =

To put up similar numbers to what Walker did last year?
That's less than 2 catches and 21.5 yards per game......plus a TD every 5th game.
Im gonna go "out on a limb" and say Vance outproduces Walker's 2012 numbers in his rookie year.
Looks like our boy is starting to pick up the system........
Vance McDonald – Five catches during team drills, and three of those catches were flat-out spectacular. Twice he twisted his body in the air and caught passes thrown behind him. Once he ran a wheel route deep down the left sideline and caught an overthrown pass with his fingertips. He made each catch look easy. He did not drop any passes. He clearly is the 49ers' No.2 tight end. Neither Garrett Celek or MarQueis Gray are in McDonald's class.
I think Jimbo is salivating over the possibilities of VD and VMcD this year....
Q: It seemed like Colin Kaepernick and the first team offense really ended practice with a flourish.
HARBAUGH: They sure did. They were really sharp there. Colin has been on it all offseason. That period especially was outstanding. Saw Vance McDonald on his birthday making some spectacular grabs. We have to have more Vance McDonald birthdays. He was outstanding.
Now I don't want to put the horse before the cart, but if one of the young guys can provide the deep threat that Moss did last year and put up similar numbers =
While Vance out produces what Walker did last year......AND VD/Kap click like they did in the playoffs......AND Boldin can be that chain mover....I think our passing O will be just fine.
That's a lot of question marks for sure, but completely possible.
Still..........damn we would have been DANGEROUS with Crabs this year.
